Children’s Committee Shopping Spree

On Saturday, December 9th from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m., the children’s committee will be hosting a Children’s Christmas Shopping Spree in the Fellowship Hall.  The children are invited to come and shop for family members/friends.  We will have helpers there to assist with the shopping as well as with the wrapping.  Your child can then take these presents home to place under their Christmas tree.  We will also be providing snacks while listening to Christmas music.  It is mandatory that you sign up for this event, so that our store will be sufficiently stocked for the shoppers.  There are sign-up sheets in the sanctuary in front of the piano and the organ.  Please fill one out and drop in the offering plate or you can hand-deliver it to a children’s committee member.  Thank you.

 

Trunk-or-Treat

On Halloween, we will be helping the ALFD with trunk-or-treat.  This event starts at 6 until 9.  There will be decorated trunks for the kids to trick-or-treat, hotdogs, French fries, drinks, and a haunted house.  We welcome anyone who wants to provide a trunk and hand out candy.  We would also appreciate candy donations.  There is a collection box in the copy room for candy.   This event is FREE to everyone! 

Annual Pumpkin Carving

Please join us for the annual Pumpkin Carving on Sunday, October 29, 2017. The evening will begin around 5:00 pm with the Pumpkin Carving. Please bring your pumpkin and carving supplies. If you would like to sign up to bring a soup, sandwiches, and/or desserts please see Carmella Williams or Sharon Kristoff.  This is a great time of fun and fellowship!  There will also be small pumpkins for the children to paint.  This event is co-sponsored with the Archer Lodge Community Center.

Neuse River Clean Up

 On April 29th – RESCHEDULED DUE TO FLOODING FOR JULY 29TH –  we (White Oak) will be meeting down by the river to pray, and assist the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) with our semiannual clean up.  We will meet at Neuse River Adventures (Johnny House’s place) at 7:30am to begin our clean up.  We are normally on the river until around noon or 1:00pm.  So bring water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, gloves, and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty and wet.

This is a fantastic time for fellowship, a great time to disconnect from the world and reconnect with others, as well as do one of the tasks God put us here for.

  “Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it.”  Genesis 2:15.
